a convoy carrying weapons for hezbollah in lebanon, as serious as the target was in fact a scientific research site. in 2007, israeli warplanes bombed a military site in eastern syria. the attack comes amidst unrelenting violence in the fight between the regime of syrian president bashar al-assad and rebels seeking his ouster. but in a sign of potential diplomatic opening, the head of syria's main opposition group said wednesday he is prepared to hold talks with al-assad's representatives outside syria of the government releases tens of thousands of prisoners. his offer marked an apparent softening of a previously held position ruling out any talks with al-assad. speaking during a visit to kuwait, the u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon urged both sides to stop the fighting in syria. >> i urge again to members of the security council to feel the sense of responsibility to humanity and history. we cannot go on like this. what is more important fact is that the primary responsibility rests with the syrian government, president al-assad. he should listen to the voices and cries of so many
